Sea of Bitterness

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

Sea of Bitterness, your tears are without end.

They have over-flowed and laid waste men.

Their bodies litter your ocean floor,

your thirst for their blood is never quenched.

 

Sea of Bitterness, your seductive song eludes to the Siren.

Her parenting was vicious and has left you violent.

You're a mistress of Hades Underworld,

justly cursed to be loveless and barren.

 

 

 

Sea of Bitterness, please calm the waters.

Or you will walk down the chilled path of your Ancestral Mother.

Bound together by twin names,

forever to endure the same pain.

 

Sea of Bitterness, I wear your crest.

The water and I are one.

It is an abusive lover,

a manipulative friend.

 

I am scarred by it's moody currents,

and too long has it let me bleed.

Sea of Bitterness, is the sordid meaning of my middle name: Marie.

We're glad to see you back after a hiatus! Thank you for your most recent poem. It was heartfelt to say the least. The last two stanzas were best I thought and could have stood on their own.

Thank you, Joshua! I am glad to be back! And, I just realized I posted this poem twice...but, oh well. Anyhow, seeing as my middle name is Marie,(named after my Great- Grandmother) my Grandmother's name was Maria, and my Great-Grandmother's name...
